After a busy winter refitting many of the boats we are almost ready for the new season. We took 'Holly' (formerly 'Wendy') for a test trip up to the Barley Mow and back, everything worked perfectly. We broke up our journey with a very welcome tasty lunch and a drink in the pub, well it would be rude not to! The new engine and gearbox performed as they should and the central heating kept our friends warm and toasty inside as the return journey did get a bit chilly towards the end.

We now have a great new kayak trailer which allows us to offer one way kayaking/canoeing trips. We had to do a bit of work on the ebay purchase such as welding bars in the right places, old kayaks are much flatter and our new ones didn't fit. After the welding we gave it a new towing hitch, a good coat of paint, new mudguards and a set of new tyres. Now it is ready for the road!
If you would like to know a bit more about one-way trips from Odiham to Mytchett, with an optional night of camping, give us a call. Prices start from £75 for a single kayak or 2 man canoe.

You know those little jobs that just get bigger? Well we just thought we would tidy up the roof by removing years of accumulated moss only to find that the wood underneath seemed very spongy. On closer inspection we found the battens, felt and plywood were all rotten so we have the job of putting on a new roof this week. This has worked out well as we intend to expand the scope of what we offer from the kiosk. Once the roof is on we will line the inside and install a new floor with lino covering.
